SUMMARY: The Lake Charles Police Department is facing a shortage of officers, with a decrease of 15% in staffing. To address this issue, they are holding another recruitment event. Sergeant Larry Moss, a police recruiter, explains that there are numerous reasons for the shortage, including competition with other businesses in the area, especially local refineries and industrial companies. These businesses offer attractive job opportunities, making it challenging to attract individuals to join the police force.

A national shortage of police officers continues, and the Lake Charles Police Department is down by 15 percent.

This weekend they are holding a recruitment event in hopes of filling that need.

From double digits to single – that is how recruiter Sgt. Larry Moss describes the turnout for police recruiting events these days.
